    This is how I do my dove breasts. Works great for duck also:

    Dove
    Shrimp
    Jalapeno
    Bacon
    Sea Salt
    Fiesta Brand - Season-it-All.

    On a charcoal grill...... delicious

    Here's a quick video:

    Looks great! I have been filling mine with cream cheese.

    cream or other cheeses are a classic addition for sure. You can certainly add that to this recipe.
    For this one, the shrimp addition is what really gives it that extra pop.

    That looks good! I've tried the thick bacon on duck, and ruined it. Bacon took too long to cook, and the duck was over-done. Do you ever have that issue with the dove?

    I think dove is a little more forgiving. Trying not to overcook the shrimp and dove too much is the challenge. Only using a half strip of bacon makes a big difference and cooking on high heat also. I had a much harder time when I was using regular bacon but using the whole strip.

    What Jesg said below you. I just use enough bacon long enough where the two ends meat and put a toothpick in them. When I breast out my doves I pound them out flat and then use my hand tenderizer on them so their not that thick! Stevena, may try slicing your duck breasts thinner? Stick mine dove in the broiler but have to watch it close cause it doesn't take very long to get done!

    Also use the thinnest bacon you can. I used the regular size the first go around and all I could taste the bacon! Over kill. Also use a water chestnut in the wrap.

    Slightly precook bacon then wrap and cook the poppers. Also with cream cheese stir a little honey in it makes a big difference

    This is what I do as well.
    I take the bacon and lay it out on a cookie sheet that has 1/2'' tall sides to catch the grease and bake it off in the oven for until it's cooked a touch less than halfway
    done. Then drain off grease into a Mason jar and keep it in the refer to use for cooking potatoes, eggs or anything that calls for a little food lube.:l
    Wrap the dove, duck, goose or venison poppers with the precooked bacon then you can cook the bird or deer to med. rare to med. and the bacon will be done without killing the birds second time.
    For me the key is cooking them hot and fast right over the coals, turning often to keep them from burning. :yes:tu
